The hotel stay was for the Grandma's Marathon and I was there supporting a friend of mine who was running the Half Marathon. I walked through one of the doors to the hall and the carpet was ripped out, everything was extremely worn and made me feel like it was not clean. Everywhere I went smelled of smoke. The room...

We had reservations made online. Showed up at motel. The Motel is worn, dirty and has a musty smell. The front desk was empty with a a note that someone will be back shortly. I found out that the price quoted online was $69, but when I showed up the price was $89. The original price was for a single... More

I am the type of person who wants a clean room that is cheap when I am traveling. I don't need anything frilly. when I was in Duluth I would Stevie at Motel 6. The last two times I was there it was horrible. The room was dirty, interesting people were staying there, I really didn't feel safe. Last time... More

A rockin stay deserves a rockin review! The front desk was awesome, we had a blast in the waterpark, and used the free shuttle to go downtown and to canal park for dinner almost every night. Duluth was beautiful as was our fireplace/jacuzzi room. We will definitely be back!

I have stayed at this Motel several times. I understand that when you are seeking out the cheapest Motel in Duluth, that you must expect to get a cheap Motel. The room smells a little stale, not a problem. The floor is a little stained, not a problem. The bathroom was clean, good. The TV remote didn't work. They gave... More

I read a few of the reviews here before writing this to get a general idea of what others found. I have to say that I almost invariably strike it lucky with Motel 6s as I never seem to have any of the usual complaints. This is one of those with internal access to the rooms requiring shuttling of baggage... More

The room was clean and the location was convenient- right off 35 and shares a parking lot with my favorite Duluth restaurant. If you don't need fancy or frills it's just fine. Just make sure and get a non-smoking room if you don't smoke.

My wife and I stayed at the Motel 6 in Duluth over the past weekend and it was acceptable. Lets just be very honest here, if you want to stay in a Ritz Carlton, stay at one. If you want to save some money and have a place to rest your head, stay at a Motel 6 or the like.... More

First off, I want to say, I have worked in the hotel industry for about 5 years, both front desk and housekeeping. Anywhere I stay; I always enter a room and strip everything, from the bathroom to the beds. (Always gotta keep an eye out for bedbugs!!) I checked the mattress/box spring, underneath it, behind it. I checked behind the... More

A sign informing you that the hotel regularly shares their guest list with the Duluth Police Department welcomes you at this West Duluth, pet friendly Motel 6. I'm not sure if that's supposed to make you feel safe or not. Needless to say, we weren't impressed. Check-in took extra long but we were told multiple times that's because management doesn't...
